May She Rest in Peace

Reposing at home from 3pm to 9pm on Wednesday. House private on Tuesday and on Thursday morning, please. Those attending are asked to be responsible and adhere to social distancing etiquette.

Due to the continued restrictions on public gatherings, permitting only 50 mourners in church, Mary’s Funeral Mass will be celebrated in the presence of her family only, on Thursday, 2nd July, in St. Mary’s Church, Lordship, at 12 noon.

The community may wish to pay their respects and show their support to the family as Mary’s funeral cortège makes its way from her home to the church and afterwards to Lordship Cemetery for burial. Social distancing protocols remain in place and people should refrain from handshaking and hugging. You are encouraged to leave a personal message and your memories of Mary HERE
